Architecture - a language of space -
delineates boundaries, exposes points of access, exit or entry; and enables the user
to interact within a defined space. This language informs my paintings.
Working with symmetry and a standardized format to reduce variables,
these paintings establish borders on all planes. Color activates an apparent
void; a reflective surface opens a window in the painting, mirroring and
obscuring the view.
Such devices restrict then reveal the interior spaces, establishing a quiet and changeable
interaction. The formal confines of the paintings invite subjective intervention and
meaning is created in reponse to prescribed limitations of this language.
My paintings can be seen as being concerned with limits, restrictions,
controlled or limited access. I am interested in investigating space, light,
color, and perception, and the effect of the whole, which is of course
more tha just seeing.
Years ago, I began working with iagery derived from floor plans of places I lived in or worked in.
Over time the paintings became more and more geometrically structured and less about a
specific place; My work evolves slowly through repeated explorations of variations and
form which lead to new possibilities.
